Thank you, Would love to rent it again next year!

Hello Garson,

 I would be in heaven to be able to go to your cottage, after 4 years of going to different cottages nothing beats your cottage.

 Thank you for keeping me on your list. Wishing you the very best,

Hi Garson… please feel free to post this review on your site:

Mellow Yellow is an absolute gem – a spacious waterfront property with a cozy feel that we have visited for a number of years.  The cottage is large and beautifully decorated with a blend of modern features and rustic charm.  The large family room and screened porch are comfortable hang outs before heading to the family-sized dining room table.  The air-conditioned bedrooms make sleeping comfortable on hot summer nights.  We always find the property to be clean and stocked with useful products to make our stay comfortable (garbage bags, toilet paper, soap, etc.).  The kitchen is well out-fitted with cookware and utensils. Outside the dock, raft, firepit and multiple BBQs add to the cottage experience.  Swimming is complimented by the supplied kayaks and fishing gear, Lots of games and movies for those rainy days.

The cottage is on a quiet part of Gull Lake but shopping and restaurants are just minutes away in Gravenhurst.  A wonderful property!!

My husband, 3 adult children and their significant others recently spent a glorious week at Mellow Yellow.   We rented a boat from Northern Lakes Marine and spent the week, skiing, tubing and swimming in Gull lake which is just steps from the cottage.  We even found time for a couple rounds of golf at Taboo and Muskoka Bay golf courses – both spectacular!  Gravenhurst offers everything we needed so we didn’t have to worry about packing and transporting a lot of food.

 The cottage has a large great room where our whole group could gather in the evenings, a large dining area and plenty of bedrooms and space to spread out.  It is very well maintained and has all the charm and character you would expect of Muskoka cottage.

 Highly recommend!

Mellow Yellow is a beautiful and spacious cottage, very clean, well equipped and maintained. The large screened-in wraparound porch was a perfect area for dining (without bugs!), reading and just hanging out rain or shine.  The view of Gull Lake was magnificent, and was only steps from the cottage. We enjoyed exploring it with the kayaks provided.  The upstairs bedrooms were very comfortable and have air conditioning, which was welcome on a few warm evenings. Overall, we truly enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend this retreat to anyone.

Good morning Garson. Just want to say thank you for letting us stay at your place. You have obviously spent a lot of time appointing things in their proper place and the amount of detail throughout the cottage is pretty awesome actually. Well decorated and very, very spacious. Our family thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you again and it was a beautiful cottage

Amazing cottage for our weekend get together. Much better than we expected, the photos don’t do it justice. The host was amazing to deal with and provides you with a manual for all details relating to your stay at the cottage. Would definately recommend Tom (Airbnb August 2019)

A beautiful, traditional and homely cottage that was clean, comfortable and in a great location. We arrived from the UK and spent a week with family in Mellow Yellow. It was perfect for such an occasion. The house is big enough so that everyone can have their own space and the kids just loved the playing in the lake and roasting marshmallows on the BBQ in the evenings. (There was a fire ban when we were there). There are 3 bedrooms on one side of the cottage, one bedroom downstairs off the dining room and another master bedroom off the large living room – at the other end of the cottage. It has 2 shower rooms downstairs and one upstairs washroom. The kitchen is very well stocked and had everything we needed when preparing large meals. Garçon, the host, was quick to reply to messages and very pleasant to deal with. Would highly recommend this cottage to anyone who is looking for that ‘traditional cottage’ feel and wants to escape for a bit of peace and quiet or connect with friends and family.

The pictures don’t do justice for the inside of the cabin. Its GORGEOUS! The cottage is sparkling clean, the kitchen has everything you need, the dock was a good size, the fire pit is situated perfectly, the bathrooms are a great size AND the grocery store and Tim Hortons are less than a 5 min drive away. Perfect location, perfect lake front, perfect everything! Very impressed, highly recommended and I’ll definitely stay again. Thank you for everything! Brittany (Airbnb June 2019)

A group of friends and I rented the Mellow Yellow for a 3 night stay over the past weekend for a friend’s wedding. Communicating with Garson leading up to the weekend was great. He was quick to respond, very informative with answering questions, and once we arrived to the cottage it was even more beautiful and spacious than we imagined. The waterfront is lovely, lots of space for activities and a gorgeous fire pit to sit around at night. The cottage has everything you could imagine needing. Loads of sleeping space, a massive table for everyone to enjoy meals around, and very easy to get to. All in all, it was a lovely weekend at the Mellow Yellow! Nicole - AirBnb

Mellow Yellow was amazing. It was super clean and included all the expected amenities (full kitchen appliances provided as well as TV and internet) as well as some great additions (paddle boats and canoes!). The cottage was big and had plenty of room for our 10 guests… everyone commenting on how perfect it was for our weekend away. The lake was warm even in May so we even got to enjoy some lake time! Garson was more than helpful with any questions I had and access to the unit as well as full instructions for both access and safety were provided well ahead of time. Thanks, Garson, for letting us use your place! We’ll definitely be back if it’s available! Dan - AirBnb

Mellow Yellow was beautiful- a spacious and utterly charming classic muskoka cottage with gorgeous lake views. It was incredibly clean and extremely well stocked with everything we could think of or need. The screened in porch was perfect for meals and lounging and the lake views from the house and the dock were beautiful. Garson was very easy to reach and always helpful. Proximity to Gravenhurst was handy- just a 15 minute walk to Main Street. We’re looking forward to returning. Michelle (Airbnb July 2019)

We spent 2 weeks at Mellow Yellow, our family members ranged from 2.5 years to 90 years of age. There were 10 of us, we did not feel cramped, lots of room for all. The ground floor was perfect for my elderly parents with good access to washrooms & bed room. Getting in & out from the cottage was easy for them as well. For the grandchildren they could swim off the dock with lovely walk into the lake.
The area is peaceful, the cottage is tucked among tall pines. We arrived & were greeted by friendly cleaning staff, the cottage was clean & tidy. Garson was always friendly & cooperative with us from the initial booking & communicated with us during our stay to ensure that everything was to our satisfaction.
We would go back again.

We recently stayed for the Labour day long weekend with the whole extended family and this place was perfect. The property is located on a quiet road away from Traffic yet very close to amenities like grocery and hardware stores. Good Sandy beach for little ones to play in. The place was clean. There was a canoe, two paddle boards, a nice wrap around balcony around the property with lot of sitting area for the 14 people it is rated for. Would definitely visit again. Owner was very prompt with communication and accommodated a few of our requests. Rafiki - TripAdvisor

The cottage was perfect for us and really made our wedding complete. We got some great photos of all the girls getting ready and out on the dock. I would definitely return again and next time hopefully for a more laid back vacation.
Thanks for everything. You have a lovely cottage Ellen

Hello Garson… We had a great time! The kids loved the water and catching fish off the end of the dock.

Everyone feels Mellow Yellow was the best yet – lots of room and very clean. The weather was very Fall like with a couple of days of rain. We still had fun! Thank you!
